Though DVD players are most easily and conveniently controlled in conjunction with their accompanying remote control, it is not necessary in order to utilise their most basic functions.

Skill level:
Moderately Easy


  1. 1

    Press the "Power" button on the front of the DVD player. Make sure that the TV attached to the player is on and tuned to receive the audio/video signal from the player.

  2. 2

    Press the "Open/Close" or "Eject" button on the front of the player and place the DVD gently on the extended disc tray.

  3. 3

    Press the "Open/Close" or "Eject" button. Depending on the disc, you will either see a menu screen come up or it will play automatically. If you see a menu screen, press the "Play" button to start the show.

Tips and warnings

  • Use the "Forward" and "Reverse" buttons to access the options on the DVD menu.
